Smoked and Glazed Spiral-Sliced Ham

Spiral-cut hams from the grocery store are already cooked, and often smoked. That doesn’t mean that they can’t get even more awesome with a little more time on a smoker. A sweet glaze doesn’t hurt either. The end result is a lightly smoky flavored ham with a deliciously sweet crust. Like this smoked and glazed spiral-sliced ham that disappeared in no time.

Ingredients

  • 1 ham Spiral-sliced half ham, with natural juices, around 10 pounds (I used a Cook's Honey Ham)
  • Your favorite BBQ rub a honey-flavored rub works well here
  • A few chunks of smoking wood apple or cherry

For the basting sauce

Instructions

  • Fire up a smoker for cooking at 225 F. You can also make this in an oven or on a grill over indirect heat, but be careful to not dry out the ham – keep the temperature low and baste it often.
  • Add 2 small chunks of cherry or apple wood. Do not add very much wood or it will over-power the ham, since it is already smoked.
  • Sprinkle the ham with the rub and massage it into the meat. Transfer the ham to the smoker.
  • Combine the syrup and butter.
  • Every 1 hour, baste the ham with the basting sauce.
  • Continue cooking for about 5 hours or until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 F. Remember, the ham is already cooked. You’re just warming it and adding flavor.
  • Let the ham rest for 20-30 minutes before carving.
